    Call for Participation


The organizing committee is delighted to invite you to *HPDC'12*, the 
/21st International ACM Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and 
Distributed Computing/, to be held in *Delft, the Netherlands*, which is 
a historic, picturesque city that is less than one hour away from 
Amsterdam-Schiphol airport.

HPDC <http://www.hpdc.org> is the premier annual conference on the 
design, the implementation, the evaluation, and the use of parallel and 
distributed systems for high-end computing. HPDC is sponsored by 
SIGARCH, the Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture 
<http://www.sigarch.org> of the Association for Computing Machinery 

*HPDC'12* will be held at Delft University of Technology 
<http://www.tudelft.nl>, with the main conference taking place on *June 
20-22* (Wednesday to Friday 1 PM), and with affiliated workshops on 
*June 18-19* (Monday and Tuesday).
